Any Questions?

GitHub Jobs is suitable for posting for tech jobs and has a strong focus on opportunities for software developers, programmers, and engineers. Other kinds of openings typically posted to GitHub Jobs include, for example, data science and product owner roles. Most of the jobs posted are for full-time positions.

Your job ads will be visible on GitHub Jobs for 30 days.

Your job posts are searchable by members who visit the site. One way to help ensure your job posts get in front of more candidates is to include any relevant terms from the Hot Searches section at the bottom of GitHub Job’s main page in your job description.

As many factors can determine the success of a job ad it’s not possible to say how many applications your job ad will deliver. Typically, besides how compelling and detailed your job description is, the city or region you are located in, and the kind of job you are posting will play a role in whether or not you receive the number of applications you were expecting.
